Plastic Pallets Provide Egg-cellent Solution For Fragile Deliveries.

Transporting fragile goods safely can be a challenge at the best of times but Steven Rimmer Eggs has cracked it thanks to the plastic pallets supplied by

Each week Steven Rimmer Eggs delivers 65,000 weight-graded, quality checked eggs direct from the farm in its refrigerated delivery vans throughout Southport, Merseyside and West Lancashire. Looking for a more hygienic and lighter weight alternative to his existing wooden pallets, Steven approached and several other plastic pallet suppliers.

Steven’s request was quite specific; he was looking for a 5 or 6 runner plastic pallet that could be loaded easily by forklift onto his delivery vans, which are each fitted with a pallet roller system. And, most importantly he needed an anti-slip solution to ensure his fragile cargo would be delivered crack-free!

Steven said, “I approached a number of suppliers but impressed me the most with the attentive way they responded to my enquiry – offering both a range of product options and promising a speedy delivery.”

The product recommended was its popular APB 1210 Pool Perforated 5R pallet, which was supplied without lips and with anti-slip strips to provide extra stability for the loaded eggs in transit.

Steven Rimmer Eggs purchased 10 of the plastic pallets with specialist anti-slip strips, which branded in their warehouse with the company logo.

Steven added, “I’m delighted with my new slip-resistant pallets. They work seamlessly with my roller system on the vans. I use four pallets at any one time, and each pallet can carry 18 boxes with 360 eggs in a box. The other six pallets remain on the farm ready to be loaded on my return for the next delivery.”
